How a Garden Office Supports Your Mental Health as a Remote Worker

The shift to remote work and freelancing is reshaping how we think about our workspaces. Having a place where you can focus, free from the blur of home life and work demands, is a game-changer for your productivity and mental well-being. This is why we offer a wide range of bespoke garden offices and office pods, giving you that vital separation to work effectively, think clearly, and maintain balance in your life.

The Downside of Working From Home

Remote work offers freedom and flexibility, but not without challenges. One major issue is isolation. Without the buzz of an office or the casual coffee breaks with colleagues, many remote workers find themselves feeling disconnected. This can lead to feelings of loneliness and even impact mental health.

Another significant challenge is maintaining a healthy work-life balance. When your home doubles as your office, the boundaries between personal and professional life blur, and it’s all too easy for work hours to extend well into what should be personal time – leading to burnout and stress.

 

The Effect on Mental Health and Well-Being

Constant connectivity to work can increase anxiety, while isolation can contribute to depression. The absence of physical separation between ‘work’ and ‘home’ spaces makes it harder for remote workers and freelancers to switch off, affecting their ability to relax and recharge.

Addressing these challenges is crucial not just for the sake of productivity, but for the overall health and happiness of those choosing to work in this way.

Our Solution Made for Remote Workers and Freelancers

We have worked to craft a range of garden offices and office pods specifically designed for people working from home part-time and full-time. Some of the standout features we have integrated into each of our designs include:

  • Superior Sound Insulation: This design consideration ensures that the usual household noises or external distractions are kept at bay, allowing for a focused work environment.
  • Engineered for Comfort: Equipped with optimal thermal insulation to help them remain cosy in winter and cool in summer, providing a pleasant workspace throughout the year. 
  • Better for the Eyes: Natural light floods these interiors through strategically placed uPVC windows and doors, reducing eye strain and boosting mood and productivity.

 

Open and Close the Door on Work When You Choose

This physical distinction of space helps to reinforce the mental boundary between work and personal life, making it easier to switch off at the end of the day. The short commute to your garden office serves as a ritual transition into work mode, enhancing focus and efficiency. At the same time, stepping out of the office signals the end of the workday, helping to relax and recharge.

  • Many thanks

    Many thanks to you and the installation team we are very pleased with our buildings that have been constructed over the past couple of days. They compliment the 2 garages and a pool shed which have been built on the property since 2004

  • It has enhanced our garden, the structure is very sound and looks great. Highly recommended.

    I was looking for an alternative to a standard concrete garage and found Warwick via google. I paid them a visit and was impressed with the standard of the wooden buildings they manufacture, so placed an order. Garage is now complete and I am very very pleased, it has enhanced our garden, the structure is very sound and looks great. Highly recommended.

  • 30 Years old – still looks fantastic

    I'm finally returning as a customer, as I would like 2 buildings for the house I'm moving to in Norfolk. The last one is 30 years old and still looks the same as the day it was put up. No rot, no decay - just a brilliant building. The overhangs really protect it, and I've only re-felted it once in all that time. I'm delighted you're still in business as I'm not looking anywhere else for the new ones.

    Mr Ford

  • Great to support local business

    Very professional throughout. Being able to view the product and discuss design and alterations was very important, especially when spending this amount. Seeing the product is key, plus being local - it was great to support local business.

    Richard Turner

  • Superb.

    Superb. I've just had a garage supplied and installed by Warwick, and have been very impressed with both the building itself and their customer service and support. The building was supplied and fitted ahead of schedule, which was nice. After initial installation there were a couple of minor snags, which Warwick addressed and put right first thing the next day. You can't ask for more than that. I would wholeheartedly recommend Warwick based on both the quality of their product and their customer service.

    Well I'm just going to sell my 4 year old "traditional office" supplied by them as I don't use it much and came across these reviews. My office is (as stated) four years old. Still 100% water tight everything is perfect despite being under a tree all the time. I found them great and the building I bought is quality....

    I previously bought from you in 2007. Still the same quality, and service. My previous garage is still good after 13 years so I knew how good the quality of your garages was before I decided to buy this one. Your office staff were also excellent.

    We are so glad to have found you. We are surrounded by 'bespoke' garden office companies here in London - but your range is just as impressive.

    Miss M Samm

  • 23 Years old and looking fabulous

    Dear David You built the garage for me in Nov 2000 and the wood is as good today as when you built it and I’ve been very pleased with it. Rain stopped my Cuprinol painting this morning but I thought about the possibility of replacing the felt with Tapco slates, depending on price etc, as it has plenty of life left in it. Best wishes Mark D.

    Mark D

  • Great communication throughout

    I spotted your van when you were at my neighbours, popped in to see what they were having, and liked what I saw. What else can I say - great product, great communication throughout - easy process - very happy.

    Mrs Nix

  • So professional & efficient

    Positive experience from first call to your office requesting brochure, to erection of office on site. The on site team were amazing - so professional and efficient.

    Mr Kings

  • Value for money

    I chose Warwick because they adapted my office to suit me, and they would always update any changes in writing. OK the lead time was a bit longer than I'd anticipated, but that meant they were busy, so it gave me confidence that my money was safe. The team arrived and built it in next to no time, and they even cleared up after themselves... I'd have no hesitation in recommending them

    Sam

  • Left the site immaculate

    Gus who came to site were lovely. Very polite, professional and friendly. They left the site immaculate. 5 stars for everything else

    T Widdall

  • Loving the garden office

    I've known Warwick Buildings for a long time and I've been daydreaming about working from home in my very own garden office for years. Finally I've managed to connect the loose ends together, and I am now enjoying the increased enthusiasm that I get from the improved vista that overlooks the valley below. It's certainly been worth the wait. Loving the garden office

    Alice T

  • I was impressed

    All 5 stars. I was impressed with the speed and the tidiness of the erecting of the garage, and the politeness of the team.

  • We’re very happy with the quality.

    I have previously purchased THREE double garages from Warwick Buildings, the first over twenty years ago is still standing, although unsurprisingly, we re-roofed it. Currently I'm awaiting a quote for a workshop - but the similar one they delivered and erected two years ago is still like new, no issues at all. We're very happy with the quality.

    David Holmes

    Wonderful product, exactly what we wanted. Exemplary service at every stage. Excellent and prompt response to queries... Jake particularly awesome!

    Excellent service. Online design process was incredibly simple. Communication ahead on install was faultless and the install was quick and the team very friendly. Would highly recommend. Great price too.

    Craig W

  • Very helpful.

    Visited here to get an idea of the possibilities for a new garden office workshop we are looking to have built. They have examples of the various buildings that appear on the website, makes it a lot easier to picture the options, and to get real idea of scale. The gentlemen we spoke to was very helpful. Now just need to put our design on paper.

    Dave Deacon

  • Credit to the company

    The guys who installed were professional, fished in good time, left the garden tidy - credit to the company

    Mr Reynolds

  • Everything I had hoped for.

    I was unable to visit the show site and so was a little concerned as to what the build quality would be like. I needn’t have worried as when the product was delivered it was everything I had hoped for.

  • The team were excellent.

    The team putting up the room were excellent - polite and efficient. You were recommended by our daughter in law - and we will pass on the recommendations.

  • Cracking Job

    Hi, I have to say your guys did a cracking job here on the build and with cleaning the site up they are a credit to your company. Sincerely Mr and Mrs Widdall

    Mr and Mrs Widdall 

  • They were excellent

    Just to commend your onsite team - they were excellent

    Mrs Johnson

  • Great company – would certainly recommend.

    We've had two buildings from Warwick. First one over twenty years ago which we insulated and finished off ourselves. It's been brilliant so we had no hesitation to go back when we needed a second one. This time we chose a contemporary design which was fully kitted out, saving us time, money and arguments. Same lad that did the first one is still working there and takes care with the finishing touches. Great company - would certainly recommend.
